Default Copy Toolbar Icons into tutorial document

Hi



I have been asked by my company to write some tutorials on using word 2010 and obviously want to use screen shots... this is not a problem, but I am wondering if there is an easier way to grab just the menu icons (copy command graphic, water mark button etc.) without having to do a screen grab and then crop to just the size of the button in question.

Is there either a way to export the icons and convert if necessary to a format that can be used - png, jpg etc. or

a freely available set of vectors of the buttons - preferable as this allows magnifying within the document.

Any help gratefully received
Thanks
GreenBoy

Taking screen shots is likely the easiest way, assuming that you have good software for the purpose. (You can no longer access/edit buttons from within Word, as I'm sure you already know. It used to be possible in Word 97–2000.) The so-called Snipping Tool, built into Windows 7, does a decent job, but there are probably more capable alternatives available. :-)

Hi Stefan

Thanks for the reply - yes I have some good screen capture software, which will do OK, I was just hoping that the icons for the tool-bar buttons were available somewhere that i could use these - saving some time.

Never mind, if they are not, then i can still make do.

Thanks again for your response.
GreenBoy.
